This is historic. Rachel Maddow just uncovered the long-held secret that our not-so-beloved president has been clutching onto for dear life since it was first mentioned during his presidential campaign over a year ago.
About an hour ago, Maddow announced that she would be releasing Trump’s tax returns at 9pm ET, and the internet immediately went completely wild. Before the segment even aired, the White House released an offical response.
That response was tweeted by Jim Acosta:

The internet reaction to this speaks volumes. Check out some responses below:
